Scrolling through textile trends last month I came across this for #SS21, it came at the perfect time when I was selecting materials from our #sustainable manufacturer.
#1 Organic Inspired Textures
‘Bringing the art of archaeology to your front room, SS/21 interior trends present us with an abundance of natural surface patterns and textures. With nature being mimicked from the aesthetic of rock layers and composites as well as featuring purposefully loose threads and a natural colour scheme. We’re a big fan of how interior trends continue to bring us closer to nature each season, as well as the nod to a more sustainable outlook on decor.’
When I received the fabric swatches from the printers a few weeks ago, I had a definitive mindset of wanting a crisp clean cotton base material that would show off the design and colour. I’ve always like marimekko and the Scandinavian style.
However when I was shown samples on an unbleached natural linen I was taken by it’s softness and really ‘interiors’ feel. It was comforting and subtle with an almost vintage look (almost opposite to what I wanted). After colour testing I have managed to achieve a bright effect with retaining a rich coloured ground.
However to ensure we can cater for many style requests we are printing onto both pure white cotton and natural unbleached linen in different weights for different applications. (But, don’t worry, we use a more environmentally-friendly printing process in all our production FYI!)
What do you think of #unbleached linen? Do you like the #environmental perk of #lesschemicals used?
